    Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audiobook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

    Amethyst says: "If "My Lives" left you wanting more......"

    Loved this book!! Roseanne tells it like it is!! If you like Roseanne...read this book.

    Due to horrible physical deformities, he spent much of his life as a fairground freak. He was hounded, persecuted, and starving, until his fortune changed and he was rescued, housed, and fed by the distinguished surgeon, Frederick Treves. The subject of several books, a Broadway hit, and a film, Joseph Merrick has become part of popular mythology. Here, in this fully revised edition containing much fresh information, are the true and un-romanticized facts of his life.

    I've always wanted to know the real story of John Merrick...this was very informative and told the listener every detail of John's life...I felt so sorry for him having to live like that because he was so misunderstood. He was a smart man and had many wonderful qualities...its a shame that his outward appearance was the deciding factor to some people as to whether Mr.Merrick was someone of substance...he truly was extraordinary in a unique and wonderful way...you won't be disappointed!!

    A month before her death on May 20, 1989, Gilda Radner entered a Los Angeles recording studio to deliver what would be her final performance - this remarkable audio autobiography, in which she reveals the inspirational story of her struggle with cancer...a private, personal battle in which the humor and humanity that has touched millions became her most powerful weapon.

    Jesse says: "Such a funny lady gives us an insight to her life."

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Janice says: "Indescribable"

    I loved reading about this person's life...he was an amazing man!! Louis Zamperini is a true hero!!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Mary Lynn Richardson says: "Brilliant story, pitch perfect narration"
    "EXCELLENT!!"
    Overall

    Anyone interested in medicine or becoming a doctor or nurse, EMT or any other career in the medical field...THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!!! Loved every minute of this book.

    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    Book reader says: "Truth and heartache"
    "Now I know the real facts of this tragedy..."

    Anything and everything you always wanted to know about Columbine right down to the smallest detail!! Very complete account of this tragedy...well done!!!

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "Way to go Enzo!"
    Overall

    This book was a good read...I think a book is GREAT when it brings out all of your emotions...this one did. The dog, Enzo was superb! It was sad in a lot of ways...and sometimes it made me feel down because of what the characters were going through.....but the story line tied in to make a happy ending.
